Improving Assessment Where It Means the Most: In the Classroom.
Stiggins, Richard J.
Educational Leadership, v43 n2 p69-74 Oct 1985

Yet administrators, researchers, and teacher educators emphasize the latter to the detriment of education. New research and training emphases, greater public awareness, and a resultant reallocation of resources are needed.(MCG)
